The Gurus: Ranking Acting, Singing, Writing, Best Picture-ing

Reflecting the Grammys and a few last guild votes before Oscar voting closes, consensus arrives in a few categories under the watching eyes of the Gurus, notably in the acting categories, and a sweep in Best Adapted Screenplay for BlacKkKlansman.

The Gurus remain unconvinced of a Bohemian Rhapsody surge, but there’s love for Rami Malek.
